Pan Fried Halibut
Put the flour, seasoning salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder together in a large resealable bag. Shake together and add the fillets; shake again to cover. In a small bowl, mix the mayonnaise and mustard together; set aside.
Heat a heavy skillet and oil to medium. Toss in a little bit of the flour mixture to see if it cooks it. When it does, it's ready to go. Keep the oil handy as you will have to add a little throughout the cooking process.
Delicately add a few fillets (do not overcrowd) to the hot oil. When it starts to turn golden brown; flip. Lightly spread a little bit of mayo/mustard mixture over the brown side. Cook until the other side is turning golden; carefully flip again. We are going to flip this a few more times as you continue to baste. If you run out of mixture, just make more.
Continue to base browned sides of fillets until they reach a deep brown color. Test them with a fork to see if they flake; if they do, they are done.
If you have to cook more, just place these fillets in a pan tightly covered with foil and leave in a 200 degree oven. You must cover them tightly or they will dry out.
Serve with lemon wedge, steamed vegetables (broccoli, carrot, peas) and boiled potatoes.
